Dogmatic opposition to DDT meant NO DDT at all. By using knowledge and applying DDT minimally and where one gets the biggest bang for the buck is something else.

Similar for the use of the most safe and clean power generation, greenpeace remains dead set against all use of nuclear power. This alone has a high chance of creating a power shortage in the world in about a generation from now since nuclear power is IMHO an inevitable in between phase between today and the future of completely sustainable energy supply, predominantly solar power.

And please don’t start mentioning Chernobyl and read up on the facts. Terrible disaster but the nuclear bombs set off in the 50s and 60s in the atmosphere created a very well-documented fall-out that was the equivalent of 2 Chernobyls per week for a year. And the world has only improved since then…

Comment on President Obama Defends Shell Arctic Drilling Decision by Denise Gregory http://royaldutchshellplc.com/2015/08/29/president-obama-defends-shell-arctic-drilling-decision/#comment-1187788 Sun, 30 Aug 2015 09:51:12 +0000 http://royaldutchshellplc.com/?p=79799#comment-1187788 DRILLING IN THE ARCTIC SHOULD BE STOPPED. This is the ONLY TRUTH from a Shell spokesperson, & I quote
‘We choose to explore there because we have the expertise and experience to operate responsibly and be profitable at the same time.”
Its not the complete speech, but is THE most relevant, especially the ‘be PROFITABLE’. The rest of it was just garbage about how ‘good’ they THINK they are.
The arctic is already in trouble due to climate warming & allowing THAT, or any other company to START DRILLING there will only it worse. IT IS A MASSIVE MISTAKE, an OIL SPILL JUST WAITING TO HAPPEN & shell, despite how great they THINK they are, will NOT be able to clean it up. THE spill will have DISASTROUS effects, not just in the Arctic, but everywhere that spill WILL spread to, because THIS company WILL HAVE ONE, its been proven time & time again & they have NEVER been able to contain it, let alone clean it up.
Drilling in the Arctic is ALL about MONEY & not about energy at all. Shells attempt to smear Greenpeace & anyone else who wants to stop them, is pathetic.

Why don’t we bring back all those banned pesticides because the clearly ‘save lives’, not to mention enrich those who manufacture them. You would be amazed and the number of genetic deformities that show up in wildlife in the Brazos River Valley in Texas that are directly attributable to the heavy and widespread use of herbicides and pesticides. These people have failed to learn the lesson of nature that little birdies know by instinct, and that is: ‘It is fatal to sh*t in your own nest.’

Comment on Shell Blog by From an Old EP hand. http://royaldutchshellplc.com/wp-wall-guestbook/#comment-1187439 Sat, 29 Aug 2015 13:28:19 +0000 http://royaldutchshellplc.com/?page_id=16226#comment-1187439 LondonLad, well said. Completely agree. You did not mention it but is was in the link you supplied. Greenpeace is responsible for millions of malaria deaths due to their dogmatic opposition of DDT. This is very well documented. I dare not take the word murderers in my mouth…
They are a professional marketing organisation that terrorises many companies, governments and individuals into doing the wrong thing. There is no accountability. And in the netherlands it is a stepping stone for making political careers after the photogenetic attraction of young activists wears off. In another generation from now it will become clear they have been responsible for forcing governments and companies into destroying wealth and creating hunger as well as energy shortages.
By that time they (and the politicians with a greenpeace background) will explain in the media that they have been misunderstood, misinterpreted and with the knowledge of today ‘we might have done things slightly differently’. Perhaps a small ‘sorry’. They, as few others, know the strength of manipulating the large number of ‘useful idiots’ in our society, thereby raking in a lot of money.
